This Sondheim revue is a charming and bittersweet tale of love, loneliness and survival.
The Stage Door Theatre is proud to announce its inaugural production will be Marry Me a Little.
Marry Me a Little is a musical with lyrics and music by Stephen Sondheim, conceived by Craig Lucas and Norman René. The revue sets songs cut from Sondheim's better-known musicals, as well as songs from his then-unproduced musical Saturday Night, to a dialogue-free plot about the relationship between two lonely New York single people, who are in emotional conflict during an evening in their separate one-room apartments. Despite knowing of the other's existence, they never get up the courage to talk to each other, though they imagine what such an encounter might be like.
Directed by Robert McWhir, the artistic director of the new Stage Door Theatre, who is no stranger to Sondheim musicals having produced and directed both Follies and Into the Woods at his former home, the Landor Theatre, in North Clapham.
MARRY ME A LITTLE is 65 minutes duration without an interval
